The Pavarotti and Friends concert will take place this December in Sê£o Paolo. No explanation was given for the change in venue.
In a separate announcement, Pavarotti said that he would be giving singing lessons to 24 students, to be chosen at the end of the month, at the Orazio Vecchi conservatory, a state-funded school in Modena. According to Agence-France Presse, the two-year course, which includes classes in theory and history, gives students the equivalent of a master's degree.
At a press conference announcing the new venture, the singer said that his students should sing professionally during their training in order to cover living costs.
